In terms of colour matching it's not great with the main tank area, to be honest, but much better with the front fender and tank centre strip (with are a lighter, flake finish). Still, it's just a bit of bling and I shan't worry too much about it; the shorter levers suit me much more, and the operation itself is a step up from the stock levers.
It's the Rizoma one - I like it a lot. Full list of mods as follows:
BMW DWA alarm system
Unit Garage slip-on exhaust
Custom black/orange Scrambler seat (not shown in photo)
MachineArt X Heads engine covers
V-Trec brake and clutch levers
Unit Garage rear rack (not shown in photo)
Rizoma tail tidy
Rizoma swing arm license plate holder
Puig bar end mirrors
Wunderlich front fender extender
Rizoma fork sliders
Wunderlich Xtreme rear mudgaurd
Evotech oil cooler guard
Wunderlich sidestand extender
Wunderlich tank pad set
Sargent seat pod (not shown in photo)
Well, I thought I should update this thread as - for a good while, at least - I'm finished with the mods. Some Oberon performance bar ends went on today as well as the Sargent seat pod, and all I really want to do now is upgrade the rear shock; however, I'll probably try to get a good summer of riding in first and then make a decision. I've also decided to keep the rear subframe on, at least until after a weekend trip planned for May. It was disappointing to learn that the bike without the subframe will only take 8kg of luggage on the rear seat, and i don't really want to faff around removing/replacing it repeatedly.
Anyway, the aggregated list of mods now looks as follows:
• BMW DWA alarm system
• BMW heated grips
• Custom black/orange Scrambler seat (for when I’m not using the pod)
• Dart windshield
• Evotech oil cooler guard
• MachineArt X Heads engine covers
• Oberon Performance bar end mirrors
• Puig front fender extender
• Puig rear hugger
• R&G tail tidy
• Rizoma fork sliders
• Rizoma swing arm license plate holder
• Sargent seat pod
• Unit Garage rear rack (removed for now)
• Unit Garage slip-on exhaust
• V-Trec brake and clutch levers
• Wunderlich sidestand extender
• Wunderlich tank pad set
I haven’t seen many of these here so thought I’d start a collection. It'd be great to see what you’ve done with your Mars Red/Cosmic Blue.
The tank design of this 719 is arguably the most esoteric of the lot. I kept stopping on it while looking for the past few months. So a dusty, new-old bike...
I'm starting this thread for anyone to share photos of their bike in one place.
I'll start off with my first day with the nineT, but plan on adding more photos of my time with it and hope more will join in.
All these individual threads with peoples first photos will fade away, post up the...
Show off your Urban G/S, modified or stock, I for one would like to see a thread with just this model in the one place.
I'll start, Akro slip on, CRG bar end mirror, Boxer oil filler cap, mirror clamps too. more Farkles on order.
